Literacy Archive On-line

Digital Archive of Literacy Narratives

While I was at 4Cs in Louisville, Kentucky, I had the opportunity to take part in a digital literacy archive project put together by the Ohio State.
A description of DALN from the website:

"The DALN invites people of all ages, races, communities, backgrounds, and interests to contribute stories about how — and in what circumstances — they read, write, and compose meaning, and how they learned to do so (or helped others learn)."

I did mine on a computer's webcam, so I imagine you might be able to do the same & I encourage anyone to register and submit. It's a really interesting project and something that's designed to be used in classrooms, as a part of helping students to understand that the acquisition of literacy varies.
